in october, governor romney is going to be for todd aiken. >> republicans turn to newt gingrich to try to save todd aiken in missouri and save the senate. howard fineman has the latest. >> it turns out he stacked the crowd with supporters. it's not the first time. >> i do love that music. i have to tell you. >> good to have you with us tonight. thank thanks for watching. mitt romney tried to create a distraction from his 47% comments. instead he gave himself more headaches. friday afternoon the romney campaign released the 2011 tax returns. the romneys paid 14.1% and would have paid an even lower rate if they took all of their deductions. the tax returns put the focus back on the issue of tax fairness in america. romney was asked about his tax rate during an interview with "60 minutes." >> is that fair to the guy who makes $50,000 and paid a higher rate than you did? >> it is a low rate. one of the reasons why the capital gains tax rate is lower is because capital has already been taxed once at the corporate lev level. as high as 35%. >> so you think it is fair? >> yeah, i think it's t
the president. >>> and newt gingrich just got down in the mud. >> he's not a real president. he doesn't do things that presidents do. he doesn't worry about anything that the presidents do. he's a false president. he's a guy that doesn't do the president's job. >> not a real president? i have some thoughts on that one. >>> plus, mitt romney's crowd is pretty fired up for paul ryan, that is. >> that's my guy,. paul ryan, sbt thisn't that som? wait a second. romney/ryan. romney/ryan. there you go. that's great. >> the cracks are starting to show in the gop bromance. >> and remember these folks? republicans thought that by 2012 everybody would look like this. whatever happened to the so-called tea party revolution? this is "politicsnation" on msnbc. >> ladies and gentlemen, it's time for a new segment. this is called mitt romney, it's kind of a joke. watch this. >> my dad used to tell us that one year they ate nothing but potatoes. that was when they lived in idaho. even later in life, my dad couldn't look a potato in the eye. and that's kind of a joke. [ angry ] i just discovered untopped tr
to that newt gingrich debate in florida where he dispatched newt gingrich. he can be very good. i think he can have real highs, but also can have lows and say the darnedest things sometimes. >> i want to bring in georgia congressman tom price. good to see you, good morning. >> good to be with you. >> one of the things we are being told from inside the romney camp is he is getting ready for the 47% video. he knows the question is going to come up. this is what his advisor says. "we wouldn't be surprised, obviously, if that came up in the debate, and the governor's prepared, obviously, to respond about it. the fact is as governor romney has said repeatedly, he is running to help 100% of americans." he has said that. he said that repeatedly. it still resonating in a negative way with voters. what do you think he has to say about the 47% which has dogged his campaign since that video came out? >> remember, that was recorded during a fund-raising activity. it was a cut. this is an opportunity for governor romney to have his message come through unfiltered to the american people. that's, i think, wh
. also, what it's like to debate mitt romney. newt gingrich knows and he'll tell us about that and more. and after a multimillion dollar makeover, what's supposed to be one of washington's most beautiful sites is an ugly eyesore. wolf blitzer's off today. i'm joe johns. you're in "the situation room." >>> we begin with one of the states that in just 41 days could decide the presidential election, ohio, is so important both to president obama and mitt romney campaigning there this afternoon. and there's more of a backdrop than just the early autumn trees. a brand new quinnipiac/cbs "new york times" poll has the president a full ten points ahead of romney in ohio. 53% to 43%. let's begin with cnn white house correspondent dan lothian. >> reporter: joe, even though a new poll shows the president with a double digit lead in ohio, mr. obama continues to push hard in the state. it's a huge priority for the campaign according to a top aide. by our count the president has visited ohio at least 13 times so far this year. this time ahead of early voting, which by the way begins next tuesday. now,
is lagging in key states. we'll talk with newt gingrich about the reasons why and what the romney campaign should do. two years ago, the people of bp made a commitment to the gulf. and every day since, we've worked hard to keep it. bp has paid over twenty-three billion dollars to help people and businesses who were affected, and to cover cleanup costs. today, the beaches and gulf are open for everyone to enjoy -- and many areas are reporting their best tourism seasons in years. we've shared what we've learned with governments and across the industry so we can all produce energy more safely. i want you to know, there's another commitment bp takes just as seriously: our commitment to america. bp supports nearly two-hundred-fifty thousand jobs in communities across the country. we hired three thousand people just last year. bp invests more in america than in any other country. in fact, over the last five years, no other energy company has invested more in the us than bp. we're working to fuel america for generations to come. today, our commitment to the gulf, and to america, has never been st
of what's being used to defeat president obama. newt gingrich. what if obama is so outside our comprehension that only if you understand kenyon anti-colonial behavior can you begin to piece together his actions. and -- >> i would like to have him show his birth certificate, because if he can't, then he has pulled one of the great cons in the history of politics. >> and -- >> i wish this president would love how to be an american. >> and -- >> no one's ever asked to see my birth certificate. >> and this rank twees, obama sympathizes with attackers in egypt. and then last night -- >> he's not a real president. >> tonight on "hardball" we show you the true ugly campaign being run against the president. even in the face of this ugly attack, there are two big new poll numbers running in his direction. we give them to you tonight. let's check the hardball scoreboard. according to a "new york times"/cbs/quinnipiac poll, obama leads romney by ten points. down in florida, the president's lead in the poll is nine, 53-44. the president looks to be opening up a big lead now, even in the fa
of republicans, newt gingrich, for example, saying, hey, mitt romney, get out there, pick a fight, and win it. jim acosta with me now from the romney campaign. the debate, of course, tomorrow night in denver, you, sir, are in littleton, colorado. should we take mitt romney at face value when he says this debate is not about me winning? >> reporter: well, brooke, i think this is all part of the debate expectations game that has been going on for several days now. i think you also sort of heard mitt romney downplay some of the talk that has been going on since the new york times reported over the weekend that, you know, mitt romney is preparing all the zingers for the debate and you heard people saying maybe he's not preparing zingers. a lot of this is the head fake to the head fake to the head fake. of course, mitt romney and the president are both probably working on lines of attack that they'll deliver at this debate. that is sort of standard operating procedure. you saw that scott brown, elizabeth warren debate last night in massachusetts. this is what campaigns do. this is what candidates
've interviewed newt gingrich, he often says to me the way it worked with president clinton, when he was the speaker, was that you would be in a room full of advisors and a moment would come, you would sling them all out and it would be you and him, man to man, get it done, compromise, get it done. why is that not happening now, and what advice do you give to barack obama to try and get into that kind of mindset with the republicans? >> that's -- what speaker gingrich said is true but it's not the whole truth. that is, we had one year when virtually nothing got done. i was a real stickler for passing all my budgets on time, and -- but in 2005 we didn't, and i had to veto what they did, and they had to do what they did because that's what they promised the voters they'd do in the '94 elections, and then the citizens decided they agreed with me more than them, they didn't want the government shut down, they just wanted to keep bringing the deficit down. so after the two government shutdowns in late '95 and early '96, then we began this compromise process everybody talks about. there ha
of their concerns about todd akin. here he is doing a press conference last week with newt gingrich. newt gingrich there showing his support for todd akin. today republican senator jim demint and former presidential candidate rick santorum threw their support behind todd akin. republican senator roy blunt, remember him? the guy who said todd akin has to get out. he put out a statement today saying that now he is supporting todd akin. the state republican party, which had expressed grave public doubts about akin after his comments about some rapes being legitimate last month, they now say they're all in for todd akin as well. even the national republican party's senate campaign committee, the guys who said we're done when they were talking about todd akin, apparently they are thinking now of not being done with him anymore. so now we know just how offended all of those republicans really were about the legitimate rape comments. they were offended enough until the deadline passed and they couldn't get off the ballot and they couldn't replace him anymore, and now they've decided they're already with
them pretty effectively to dispatch rick perry, dispatch newt gingrich, who everybody was talking about as the great debater and so on. so i actually think romney has a good chance of sort of getting over the sort of is he presidential hump. i agree with charles, though, he has to get a bit further and deliver a little more on substance than he did during the republican convention. and the republican convention was all about mitt romney, you know, likeable human being. i think talking about likability now sort of misses the point. for romney, it's all about saying obama has failed, here's some substance i can offer as an alternative, you don't necessarily have to love me to want to put me in charge of a country that's frankly in a bit of a mess still. >> the strange thing about mitt romney, i have interviewed him three times now and he is quite likeable when you meet him privately. there's definitely two sides. i was struck by what one of his sons told me at the convention, when i interviewed all the boys. he said he has struggled to get out of ceo mode in public. for so long he ran a b
. >>> coming up, more right wing vitriol. newt gingrich said president obama ist a real prident, he said that last nigh hays he's a false president. when will this right wing effort stop to stop the legitimacy of this president? we'll talk about the relentless campaign. >>> also, the lead president obama enjoys in the polls may be helping democrats on other job races like senate. nde e fortunates are ne senat on the rise, wisconsin's tammy baldwin. mitt romney isn't succeeding as a solo act so the romney campaign is putting mitt romney anpaul ryan on the campaign trail toeshgs a karaoke duet, i guess. what does it tell you the big aw othe puanke nuwo guy? let me finish tonight with how the democratic party has a huge opportunity to grow after this election. this is "hardball," the place for politics. by working people. the economy needs manufacturing. machines, tools, people making stuff. companies have to invest in making things. we need it now more than er. chevron's putting more than $8 billion dollars back in the u.s. economy this year. in pipes, cement, steel, jobs, energy. we need

speaker of the house newt gingrich not only endorsed todd akin on monday, he predicted other republicans will follow his lead. >> i don't see how any national republican in good conscience after tomorrow has any choice except to say that the choices for the republican nominee, i am for the republican nominee. >> reporter: gingrich went on to help akin raise money on monday. mike hucka bewill reportedly campaign with him too, but republican support like this has been hard to come by for the missouri congressman since he said this last month. when asked if abortion should be legal for victims of rape. >> it seems to me, first of all, from what i understand from doctors, that's really rare. if it's a legitimate rape, the female body has ways to try to shut that whole thing down. >> reporter: those comments outraged democrats and many republicans. they also reversed the momentum in the missouri senate race before the state was considered a likely republican win. now polls show that democratic senator claire mccaskill has the advantage. akin has repeatedly apologized for what he said and just
moments, when romney needs to attack, he has, to dispatch newt gingrich or rick parry. they are planning for that tomorrow night. >> we'll have the debates tomorrow night at 9:00 eastern, 6:00 pacific. >>> a recall that began with peanut butter, sold at the grocery chain trader joe's, is widening after a salmonella outbreak. 30 people sick in 19 states so far. most of them kids under the age of 10. now, the company that supplied that peanut butter are recalling other nut products that are sold at some of the nation's biggest retailers. let's bring in dr. richard besser now. rich, this recall includes 101 different products, including products that aren't peanut butter. just products made with nuts. i wanted to throw everything out of my kitchen. >> that's a lot of products. it's covering a lot of different brands. you have to check the list to see if your products are there. for some kids, peanut butter is the main stay of their diet. don't do that. >> we know a million people get salmonella poisoning every year. but kids under 10, what are the symptoms? >> you worry about children, the
saw this during the republican primary. he faced a challenge from newt gingrich, he won. he faced a challenge from rick perry. people would say hey, this is a do-or-die debate. mitt romney must prove he can deliver the knockout blow, and he did do it in the debates time and time again. >> he did look very presidential in that group. we'll see how he does next to president obama which i think is a little bit different. >> yeah. >> that ohio poll is interesting because the cbs one we had last week had it at ten points. now we have another one showing it at nine points. if you start to look at the map, if he doesn't take iowa, if it gets away from him, it becomes difficult to put a puzzle together to win. >> by the way, there has been this narrative that there is the grand conspiracy and that the polls are skewed. this is what walter mondale said in 1984. this is what moveon.org said in 2004, that all the polls were skewed against john kerry and moveon.org said you just wait. and now you're hearing it frantically on the other side, which ironically, again, they are putting fox news i
the tea party folks, from people like jim demint, from newt gingrich, rick santorum, as if those guys hadn't done enough for the republican party already this year by forcing romney way to the right. but this is a really hard decision politically and practically for republicans to make. first, it's going to cost a lot of money if they go back in. they canceled all the air time. to buy the spots now would cost five or six times more than the money that they already had there in the first place. secondly, it's not politically good for the republican party or for mitt romney or for their senate and house candidates to be associated in any way with this guy. they already have a huge gender gap. look, he didn't drop out. the voters are going to drop him in november and maybe fury will tell me he disseptembers from this, and i'm sure he does, but privately a lot of republicans will say this guy can't win. >> the news here today, you referred to how he referred to this -- this is todd akin -- how he referred to his democratic opponent, the incumbent senator claire mccaskill. let's look at this, w

exceptionalism, which, of course, comes from how great we are. that's a direct quote from newt gingrich. >> thing you would change about america? >> fewer states. >> why? >> same amount of land. we need two dakotas? that seems like a waste. in this tough economy, we've got to cut back. that's the loophole that romney's going to close in his budget. he's going to lose one of the virginias and one of the dakotas. >> who needs two carolinas. >> we proved that by kicking a li'l ass in the civil war. did we not? i have no idea what that means. i want to go on record that says i think the confederacy is wrong. i'm going to take a brave stance and say i'm against slavery. >> finally, who is the most american american? >> you're looking at him, george. i am america. >> you are america. >> i am america. >> and you are about to sing. you and kenny rogers, "islands in the stream." we'll be right back with that. >> so excited.
